speed problems

Dialled in

I have just been upgraded to 360mb broadband ,(sa6) For the last 4 days the Internet speed up and down has been bismal, Im lucky if I get 100mb + down and 3mb up what's the problem now,I had to drop my Mobile account because of the terrible speed issue, Now Broadband is going the same way... VM site say there nothing wrong,,,,,,,

If there is a problem just come out and say it, not lie to us......

If we cant pay our bill they would be on our back like a soggy nappy.......  JUST FIX THE BLEEDING THING, that's what we pay you (VM) for reliable service





Check for a known local fault on 0800 561 0061 - it is an automated service

The "Check service status" web link needs half of Colchester with a TV  or internet outage before it shows an issue.

Long story short had virgin media for a year now 350mps package first 3-4 months 100-150 mps. Not quite 350 but then again not to low for me to complain cant expect all the 350 mps all the time.

(not using wifi , have Ethernet cable plugged in )

No other devices use the wifi at home ,

Last 6 months or so constantly only getting 30mps made a complaint and they kindly sent me to many links which are not helping at all.. They said everything my side is okay and said other devices may slow me down blah blah computer is the only device using the internet. They also said my modem can take broadband up to 500.

Question is am i to expect anything near 350 ? if im getting 30mps shall i pay 10 percent of my bill ? (lol) but seriously just want some tips in what it could be slowing me down this much. As far as i can see my side everything is in order with new Ethernet cable. im complete noob when it comes to this stuff but any advice is welcome please help a brother out.

Speed test the service to a Router mode Hub(3/4/5) + your device with the link below.

Once the test begins click on: Run full test to see all the stats.

The speed at the Hub should reflect your subscription.

The speed any WiFi device draws data at is limited by its data needs and technical abilities.
